Street value?

So law enforcement runs around and catches drug dealers/suppliers and from time to time, they catch the mother load of drugs.


We seized umpteen tons of cocaine with estimated street value of bazillion dollars.

OK. It would help the police department greatly if they could sell that cocaine for even half price to beef up their side to combat criminals.


Instead, I have no idea what they even do with it all. Dump cocaine in the ocean? Burn it and pollute the planet?

Does anyone even know where those tons of drugs go?

I honestly don’t know where my head is going with this but I know there is a logical flaw in this whole operation. Drug producers get rich from leaves and law enforcement goes broke trying to fight the leaf infestation... and tax payers are stuck footing the bill for the whole operation.
